One injured in single-vehicle crash on I-90 near Plankinton
Slush a factor in Thursday afternoon incident
PLANKINTON — A man was injured Thursday afternoon in a one-vehicle crash four miles west of Plankinton.
The South Dakota Department of Public Safety reports a 2010 Chevrolet Express was westbound on Interstate 90 near mile marker 306 at 12:47 p.m. Thursday when it hit a large amount of slush on the roadway, causing the driver to over correct. The vehicle slid into the north ditch.
The driver of the Express, a 38-year-old male, received minor injuries in the crash and was transported to Avera Queen of Peace Hospital in Mitchell. He was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash and was the only occupant of the vehicle.
No charges are pending in the crash.
